It's a rainy night in San Ramon and I am hanging with my folks, eating a meal every half an hour and watching enough TV for a lifetime. I am also catching up on some e-mails and general recording of What Went On In Life in the past month or so.... and how can I leave out the incredible Nevada City Bizarre?
I am so happy to report that it was a hit, a smashing success, and a damn good time! Despite the absolutely wicked weather (the kind of rain that is almost snow and blows sideways and finds its way down the back of your neck) everyone was obviously feeling stir crazy at home, and they descended on cozy world inside the Miner's Foundry like, well, crazed Christmas shoppers! But instead of dropping their loot at the mall, they kept it all in the community-- so cool!
As usual, I was so busy running around all day that I didn't take a single picture... but here are some from the professional photographer we hired, James Bratt, and there are oodles more of sweet pics from Heather at Moonshine Junkyard (one of our many vintage vendors) on her blog here!
